Atogwe finishes atop NFC in interceptions
ST. LOUIS -- Oshiomogho "O.J." Atogwe picked a perfect time to record his best season as a pro.
Atogwe was a bright spot in an otherwise dismal year for the St. Louis Rams, who wrapped up a disappointing 3-13 season with a 48-19 loss at Arizona on Sunday. The free safety, scheduled to become a restricted free agent, started all 16 games and finished with 75 tackles and an NFC-best eight interceptions.
"It's a great honor to lead the NFC in interceptions," Atogwe said. "There are a lot of good players in the NFC. I'm truly blessed."
Atogwe finished with the most interceptions by a Rams player since Dexter McCleon intercepted eight passes in 2000. The 26-year-old is in his third season out of Stanford.
